Poultney Area St. David’s Society extends a public thank you (“diolch yn fawr”) to the many members, friends and visitors to our Slate Valley region who recently participated in the Society’s June 25th Gymanfa Ganu and Te Bach event, which was hosted by and held in historic (1833) Federated Church Castleton. Appreciation is extended to Society and FCC members having completed the organization and execution of the event as well as to those who attended it. It was an uplifting service of song by the significant congregation comprised of multiple denominations from near and far. Generous free will offertory donations of nearly $700.00 designated for the church’s historic preservation fund were publicly presented to Federated Church Castleton at the Te Bach after the sing.
Thank you to Conductor Jay G. Williams III from the Welsh heritage community of Utica, Oneida, New York; to Welsh language instructor Meredith Rehbach from Middlebury, Vermont whose knowledge and humor regarding use of the Welsh language were enjoyed and appreciated; to Angela Champine, soprano soloist and Nova Wang, violinist of the Rutland community, who shared their talents by providing special music, and a most heartfelt thank you to The Reverend Robert A. Noble, III, Pastor of Federated Church Castleton, who was organ accompanist for the entire event.
